Snow Day Home learning - Monday 12th December 2022

Good morning St Jude,

A marvellous magnificient Monday greeting to you all.


Sorry that we are not at school together enjoying the snow.  I hope you have fun playing and enjoying the snow - it surely makes this time of year feel even more special.


Below are some activities that I would like you to do over the course of the day.  When you are finished you can either email them to me at or bring it in to school tomorrow God willing.


In all that you do today, make sure you have fun in the snow with your family.


Take care and God bless,

Mrs Dhannie
